Blogologues is a celebration of the Internet like you’ve never seen before. Brought to you by Lively Productions, Blogologues began as a live show of performed material completely verbatim from blog posts. Now it’s a web series and podcast as well, made up of content from blogs, Twitter and other sites around “Teh Interwebz.”
Allison Goldberg of Blogologues introduced me to the show in the Spring, explaining via email, “We perform the Internet, completely verbatim, creating characters and giving context to the bloggers’ words. We’ve done several versions of the show as one-night engagements with different themes every time (ex. Are You There God, It’s Me Blogoglogues featured all religion-based material).” Since Spring, Lively Productions have launched a podcast and web series inspired by the live show as well.
The podcast, The Craigslist News Hour, is a news show “using material verbatim from all corners of Craigslist, including Rants & Raves, Missed Connections, and Casual Encounters.” The webisodes, featured at blogologues.tumblr.com, also consist of material performed verbatim from the Internet. Check out a few episodes below. Note that some of the content may be NSFW due to language (after all, a lot of it did come from Craigslist).
If you enjoy the series and are in NYC then you can check out Lively Productions’ upcoming live show Blogologues Technogazna: Like a LOLcat Watching Itself on YouTube, which will fun for two weekends, Thursdays-Saturdays starting August 16.
